Miandad slams PCB for indiscipline by senior players
Former captain Javed Miandad has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for turning a blind eye to indiscipline by senior players.
Miandad lashed out at PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan and other top officials of the board for being spineless in dealing with indisciplined players.
“Pakistan cricket will have to bear the consequences of weak governance from the board officials in the future. In the past also the authorities turned a blind eye to acts of indiscipline and it was Pakistan cricket that suffered,” he said in an interview. Miandad was shocked that the board had ignored senior batsman Younis Khan’s show of dissent during the Pakistan Cup one-day tournament in Faisalabad. The PCB decided against any disciplinary action against Younis after he apologised for quitting the Pakistan Cup national one-day competition after a dispute with match officials.
